Happy Birthday @herbritts I loved seeing all the beautiful iconic photos you have taken in honor of your birthday today. While I have so many memories in Los Angeles and from travels around the world, and the images as mementos of them all, this might be the favorite. We shot this image for @gq in your pool in Hollywood. You loved this house and took many classic Herbski photos in this location. This is one of my most classic portraits from the era as well. You were always a dream to work with. Fun, respectful and you treated me like an equal, even when I was a teenager and your were an adult- a true friend. You are still so loved... (1987-ish)
What a day with this crew! Thank you for sharing, lovelies... @nickvinson @alvaro.official @tina_lutz @jmo_morris 🧿
It’s truly an honor to be one of the 15 women featured on the September cover of @britishvogue’s #ForcesforChange issue. Every cover I have shot for this magazine since my first in 1986 has been special and with each cover shoot and story there’s a greater story behind it. This one is uniquely different than all the others because a. it’s 34 years later and b. I share it with women I have admired and respected from a distance. This cover has brought us virtually closer and has helped to amplify our individual voices by bringing us together. The reason I started @everymomcounts, the organization I founded in 2010, is my belief that every woman deserves the same access to safe and respectful maternity care and that every mother deserves the chance to not only survive pregnancy and childbirth but also to thrive in motherhood. Thank you @sussexroyal & @edward_enninful for the recognition not only of me and my advocacy efforts but for seeing the importance of the inclusion of maternal health among the other global challenges and barriers we are collectively working to break down. 📷 @therealpeterlindbergh @therealgracecoddington @bartpumpkin @diane.kendal
Beach night with my guy, and my family. Moments like this stolen from too many forever the same day. When ignorance was bliss.

Happy Father’s Day, Daddy, coach, teacher, best friend to our children, who love you so much (and are some of the luckiest I know). You make it look easy but I know how much thought and care you put into this role every day, from the moment they were born and every day since. Thank you. We love you so @edburns ❤️❤️❤️
Happy Birthday @gailelliottofficial I always loved this photograph and spontaneous moment captured between shows on 7th Avenue during #NYFW in the late 1980’s. Thank you @arthurelgort for always being there with your camera and for being so generous with your work. This moment may be a lifetime ago but I have the sweetest memories right now of the special time spent with these beauties all because of this single image. Miss you all @lindaevangelista & @yasminlebon 😘 PS We should totally come see you in Bali for a reunion!
Did you know that a plastic bottle can take 450 years or more to decompose? Today is World Oceans Day and today, with @biotherm, I am renewing my vow to stay committed to the health and preservation of our waters. Join me and Biotherm, in their Water Lovers commitment, as we pledge to limit our plastic consumption and aid in keeping our oceans healthy. Let’s honor our powerful shared source of life, our oceans, and fight against plastic waste! #BeAWaterLover
Sweetest 16 years of my life...
Happy Sweet 16 to my partner in life @edburns These are but a few moments out of so many that stand out. Some big, others small. Together, they weave a life that continues to intrigue and surprise me. Can’t wait for many many many more...
Happy Birthday to the maestro #stevenmeisel From the day I met you till our most recent shoot, you have maintained your place in the industry, and in my book, as one of the all time greats. You continue to make me feel graceful and pretty while still creating an environment where I laugh so hard I could pee my pants, literally. Thanks for that! I love you #FunnyValentine ❤️
Hope to see you out there June 5th on #globalrunningday to help @everymomcounts raise awareness to improve access to safe, respectful and equitable maternity care. Join one of our runs in NYC, Miami, Portland, Albany, Chicago or London or virtually any time, anywhere! (Link in bio w more info on how to sign up)
Happy Birthday @naomi One of us gets younger every year on her birthday and it’s not me! #cantstopwontstop Love you like a sister and hope you have the best day filled with all your favourite things and wishing you YOUR best year yet ahead. ❤️❤️❤️ 📷 #stevenmeisel in LA for @vogueitalia @oribecanales & #francoisnars
Mother’s Day everyday with these two. I am so grateful for the care I received throughout both pregnancies and the support I got before, during and after the births of my children. Without access to quality, respectful maternity care, I may not be here today. Thank you to my doula @amybrowncoaching and midwife #elizabethboyce and #jacquesmoritz the OB who backed them. And to my husband who has been by my side since and who backs me daily so that I can be the best version of myself in this role of motherhood. 🙏🏽 #mothersday @everymomcounts #withoutmom 📷 @pamela_hanson
Shoutout to @corybooker Champion of Maternal Health who reintroduced the MOMMIES Act (Maximizing Outcomes for Moms through Medicaid Improvement and Enhancement of Services Act today) We stopped by his office to thank him yesterday, coincidentally while he was filming a Mother’s Day message. 🧡 Thank you for your leadership, Senator!
Thank you @lewismillerdesign for bringing such beautiful attention to @everymomcounts today in Central Park at the Bear Statue (79th & 5th). This is the first Wednesday of Mother’s Month and this statue represents the beauty & strength of mothers, much like the #orangerose symbol of maternal health, when supported and protected, moms and families can bloom and thrive. For every post of a photo of this Mama Bear with #LMDxEMC @lewismillerdesign will donate a dollar to @everymomcounts. This world needs all the Mamas Bears we can get so let’s love and protect them, shall we? Special thanks to two very special Mama Bears @patricialansing & @melissatberger 🧡🙏🏽🧡
Happy Birthday #AudreyHepburn This photo was originally taken for an editorial for @vanityfair which never ran. Probably because it was shot in black & white. Eventually an Italian magazine published the photos. I was 17 or 18 at the time and excited about every opportunity to work with and learn from the amazingly talented photographer #StevenMeisel and his team at that time #FrancoisNars and @oribecanales. @andreltalley styled the shoot and we recreated some of our favorite Audrey looks and moments on screen in #breakfastattiffanys but with a downtown twist. We shot this portrait in front of #TowerRecords on Broadway, instead of in front of @tiffanyandco 🖤
Hola Madre! What a great way to start Mother’s Month than with a few new @voguemexico covers. Thanks for the opportunity to share my story and the work of @everymomcounts in your May issue. My Mother taught me so much but what I love most that she gave me was my Latina heritage and a special connection to her beautiful birth country of El Salvador. Gracias, Mama! 📷 @alique_studio @celiaazoulay @fulviafarolfi @bartpumpkin @karlamartinezdesalas #voguemayo
Boom! One down, four more races to go this year! This photo by @vivianesassenstudio was taken after I completed my 3rd Kilimanjaro Half Marathon in Tanzania last month. Next up is the #bigsurmarathon2019 where I will be running my 9th Marathon for @everymomcounts. This will be my first full marathon on the west coast, and in my birth state of California. I started running with @runteamemc in 2011 to raise awareness and funds to improve access to essential maternity care around the world. Can’t think of a better reason or excuse to train and run than for a cause like Maternal Health and making quality, respectful maternity care more accessible for all. Together, we have made a huge impact since then. With your support, and the support of so many others, we are making a difference in the lives of so many. Anyone can support me in my next race and throughout the rest of 2019 in the link in my bio or sign up for one of these races. I am forever grateful for all the support so far and for future contributions too! https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/christys-2019-races1
New @inhalerdublin single out! Check them out. 🍀🍀🍀🍀Oklahoma (late night version) on repeat since I heard it.
Thank you to the maternal health dream team who joined me in Austin, Texas today for #sxsw2019 to talk about #givingbirthinamerica @rebekahgeeMD & @iamjenniejoseph work tirelessly everyday to advance women’s health, improve maternity care and birth outcomes. Thanks also to @anushayhossain for amplifying women’s voices. Together we can make pregnancy & childbirth safer for every mother, everywhere. @everymomcounts
#kilimanjaromarathon2019 ✔️ @runteamemc 5k & Half finishers pictured here but we are missing our incredible Full Marathoners. Congrats to all but especially to Adrian & Jeff. 💪🏽🏃🏽♂️💪🏽🏃🏽♂️Thank you to the best team and to all who supported our efforts today to make pregnancy & childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere 🙏🏽
Happy Birthday to my Baby Sis @eturlington My only wish for you is that you lived closer. Have the best day, week, month, year ever. I love you.
Adieu to the Kaiser. Karl loved taking pictures, often in the wee hours and in his home after feeding us all and entertaining us with his stories and the antiquities and artifacts he surrounded himself with. He was incredibly generous in every way. Whether hecwas sending you flowers with a hand written note welcoming you back to Paris every season, or insisting you go downstairs for a shopping spree on Rue Cambon after a fitting on your way out, or giving you the book about the Ballets Russes off his library shelf he caught you admiring in between shots. Karl didn’t miss a thing. He always called me “Miss Turlington” and that made me feel respected and at ease in his company. I hoped to see him one last time when I attended his recent Metiers d’art at The Met in NYC but I never got close enough to say hello or goodbye. I am grateful for so many memories and images with and by this inimitable legend and human. 📷 @karllagerfeld
About tonight! OMG @themarcjacobs invited me to close his beautiful show tonight and I couldn’t resist. A. I have known and loved this man since I met him at age 16. B. I turned 50 this year and have arrived at a place where “Why the F not” is the answer that comes up when I ask myself questions. C. I have a 15 year old daughter who I desperately want to see and hear me and this is a medium that “speaks”to her. So, thank you’s are in order, @karliekloss @gigihadid and @kaiagerber and all the lovely young women I have met briefly in the recent past or met tonight. You are ALL women I would want my daughter to emulate in your grace, confidence and elegance. Always reassuring to have @guidopalau @diane.kendal @stephenjonesmillinery and @kegrand encouraging you on and making you look and feel your best. And while that muscle did not hurt as much as I would have thought to exercise again, after 20 plus years, I am not certain I could beat the experience of tonight or wish to try! Now I can say exactly when and for whom I last walked a runway and feel so proud of all the forces of nature who made it possible! 😘@1.800.newbold & Congratulations for all of the amazing people who put shows like this together. I am in awe of the efforts I was able to witness firsthand and truly appreciate from a new perspective over the last couple of days all the effort that goes in. Bravo!
Happy Birthday to my main man since February 11th, 2006. (Dad knows) You make me smile just thinking about you and all the joy you bring us each day. I will take these 13 years times a thousand more. ❤️❤️❤️ 📷 @pamela_hanson
